Lincoln Park's Cooking Classroom

Our Whole Foods Market Lincoln Park Cooking Classroom is on a mission to bring back and elevate home cooking in Chicago! We believe in teaching cooking classes for all skill levels; helping you make real food with ease, confidence, and passion.

Our talented team of Cooking Specialists and Guest Chef’s offer weekly hands-on cooking classes for adults and children of all cooking comfort levels. Each month we offer a variety of demonstrations, hands-on cooking, and kids classes. Children's birthday parties, private hands-on cooking classes and private event rental of our kitchen space is also available. Our space provides a perfect, convenient location for team builds, birthday parties, wedding & baby showers, holiday parties and more!

Whether you are looking to learn new skills with your closest friends, show appreciation through a work team build or eat, drink and socialize the night away, our private cooking class and event options have a little something for everyone. The Lincoln Park Cooking School is the perfect space for your next troop outing, or we can work with you to help your troop earn their merit cooking badge. We would love to help you celebrate your child’s birthday with a cooking party!

Our different themed parties all involve hands on cooking activities and end with decorating a cookie or cupcake. The birthday star gets a personalized apron to take home and all children enjoy decorating their own chef hat.
